Dior Eau Sauvage celebrates 50 years

Dior Eau Sauvage celebrates 50 years

The iconic men’s scent Dior Eau Sauvage turns 50 this year, and we’re celebrating with an extra spritz and a bit of history.

Ask any perfume lover their top fragrances for men and Dior Eau Sauvage will make the list. (In fact, my own appreciation of scent started with a boy who wears Eau Sauvage.)


The scent

It’s easy to understand why everyone loves Eau Sauvage: The fresh citrus top notes mingle with basil, lavender, cumin and a floral heart atop a woody, green base. It’s light and bright enough to wear every day, but also refined enough to wear with a suit. It’s marketed to men, sure, but the scent is just as at home on women who appreciate citrus and woods. (To me, it’s the ultimate steal-it-from-your-boyfriend fragrance.)

The celebration

To celebrate the brand has created a short film that moves through the fragrance’s advertising history. From the poolside, to the race car, to the bar (and a quick post-shower stroll too), Eau Sauvage has certainly stood the test of time. It’s a fragrance that manages to be both timeless and undeniably cool and modern, too.
